Isn't That Special?
I see that former Royal Bank of Scotland chief Frederick A. Goodwin has had his knighthood revoked. I'm sure there are committed anglophiles will tell me I miss the point entirely, but isn't this just a small step up from losing his library card? Can't we at least consider something that involves, say, shackles, or a humiliating parade through the streets? Or personal bankruptcy.Yes, "personal bankruptcy" has a consoling ring. Ought enrich his experience of the human condition even more than, say, a knightood.
